Question about Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD
So about a weak ago i noticed a squeaking noise coming from the engine or hood it is coming from one of the belts or pullys it sounded like it was from the ac belt tensioner so i replaced the pully on the tensioner and also replaced the idler pully thing this was it but fired her back up and started squeaking again i checked the belts they look feel fine no cracks or anything but im not sure how old they are could they be causing the problem ? im not sure how old they are or when the last time they were replaced but they dont look to bad right now thats why i started out with the pullys any information helps if i cant figure it out ill have to go back to the dealer ship and get it checked out it sounds like the sound is coming from right where the ac belt is when i put water on the belt it stops squeaking for a little while then comes back until engine is warm then you can almost not here it at all or there is nothing there when the engine gets warm any ideas help dont think its a bad alternator pully either because the noise is not any where close to this pully
It is your belt it needs to be replace you can buy belt dressing spray to use but if you have lot of miles I would replace the belt good luck..

SOURCE: cant locate squeaking sound
u can locate this noise with a mechanics stethoscope, avil for about $10 at any good auto parts store, listen to all the pulley bearings for a noise.

Without the belt do all the pulleys turn easy. Power steering, water pump, alternator, and tensioner pulley. There is probably only one way the belt will stay on but make sure you have the smooth side to the smooth pulley and the grooved side to the grooved pulleys. See if any of the pulleys have and wiggle in them.
